A bit crowded, but I tried some new techniques. Let me know what you think! This is #SurpriseSunday, when I get to choose the subject of the drawing!

Hi ! Me again ! You did very great job with light effects ! The leaves are very well done and their shadows on the bear are very realistic ! The point of view is very well choosed and the expression and the pose of the bear cub are done with a lot of accuracy and realism. The colours are very soft and very nice to look at. The shades of green and brown you choosed give a very good atmosphere. I am so happy to notice that you perfectly create this "blurry" effect I was talking about on the fur and the branch and the background without troubling the vision of the seer.
You really controlled and mastered the blurry and you progressed a lot on this one since the bluberry pancake.
In conclusion, this is a perfect proof of your talent, your originality and of your progress on the blurry effect control ! Beautiful art which makes me feel strong emotions, as usual ; ) Congratulations ! Please never change and continue to do amazing art which generates memories and feelings ! Thanks you sooo much !

Thank you for taking the time to comment and create a critique! Well, I hope I change a little bit, as learning new things implies some change. But I hope it will all be for the better, not for the worse. :P

I honestly love this picture. The light peeking through the leaves onto the bears fur, the realistic expression on his face, and the blurred background to keep the main part of this picture in focus. It all works quite well. The leaves on the tree could have more detail, and they could have stems connecting to the branches. {but that's not a very big deal in this picture}. I like how he holds on to the branch, so he doesn't fall. The fur on the bear cub is very nice, and overall your attention to detail definitely shows in this piece. Great job!

I guess I am much older than you or come from a different background... I don't remember that one. :)

My guess is background it was an early NickJr (or PBS?) show and I'm never sure what ones made it out of the Americas or not haha. Oh, and it was a book series too!

Aww... I didn't see this one. We didn't have either back then. We had Cartoon Network and I think that's pretty much it. I was the Sailor Moon generation too, so I'm probably older than you.

Haha not by much. I missed out on it by a sliver. I got Cardcaptors tho, so there's that at least!

This is just oh-so-good!! The scattered light is beautiful, and I love the fuzziness of the little cub.

Marvelous! I never so far achieved this kind of result with this kind of animal portrait. I love the details of the tree.
